Rooted in Wyoming is a dedicated partner in building and nurturing school and community gardens. We encourage appreciation and stewardship of our natural environment, connections with our area history, and inter-generational learning and recreation. We promote resilient future generations by educating the whole child and providing access to fresh, local food.
Whether you want to dig in the dirt, water the growing plants, teach your little one about worms, or help harvest the goods… THERE IS A GARDEN FOR YOU. We have a number of gardens within the community that are always ready for your attention.
Great outdoor classrooms for students Reinforce math, science, nutrition awareness and many other topics taught in the classroom Provide students with a sense of ownership of their school and the greater community Help students become better environmental stewards and develop important skills such as patience, cooperation, teamwork, pride and volunteerism Children that are exposed to agriculture early on, are more likely to pursue some type of associated career.
Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.
Get dirty. Poke a bug. Lie in the grass. Smell a flower. Just get outside.
There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments.
The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.
To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
We need your help as we work to plan and design your garden, collect materials (tools, wood for garden plots, soil, watering devices, baskets, fencing, equipment, etc.) and fund-raise. Our group is led by an all-volunteer board of directors, consisting of the parents, teachers, community members and invested organizations.
